Making sense of software systems that drive autonomous cars...

On May 11, another Tesla Model S, rear-ended a fire truck while travelling at 60 mph, while the driver was looking at her phone. Although the passenger sustained relatively minor injuries, this does reopen the discussion on the system architecture o autonomous cars. The previous crash Tesla encountered was at night but the May 11 crash occurred in broad daylight conditions, where the ensemble of camera systems should have corrected for any potential malfunction by the rest of the sensor suite. ... read more

Why Knowledge Graphs are Foundational to Enterprise Decision Making?

Why Knowledge Graphs are Foundational to Enterprise Decision Making?

In a human brain, each neuron is connected to other neurons by up to 40,000 individual connections (called synapses). Multiplying 100 billion neurons times 40,000 synapses between two neurons is equivalent to the brain having more connections in it than there are stars in the universe. Scientists have argued that it is these connections that dictate intelligence and provide incredible recall abilities to the brain. Human intelligence enhances as we add more relationships i.e. more synapses between neurons, and it is these relationships that differentiate the super intelligent from the rest. ... read more

Making sense of sensors that drive autonomous cars

The fatal crash of Uber’s self driving vehicle highlights what many in the industry have been saying all along, the technology is still some years away from being road ready. However, it must not be forgotten that the technology has evolved rapidly from what were initially just hopes and predictions in sci-fi movies and research labs. In it’s current form, self driving vehicles or autonomous cars are miles ahead in terms of overall safety than comparative human drivers. According to an Huffington Post: “Waymo has logged over two million miles on U.S. streets and has only had fault in one accident, making its cars by far the lowest at-fault rate of any driver class on the road— about 10 times lower than our safest demographic of human drivers (60–69 year-olds) and 40 times lower than new drivers, not to mention the obvious benefits gained from eliminating drunk drivers” ... read more

Top segments most likely to see funding in Enterprise Blockchain

Top segments most likely to see funding in Enterprise Blockchain

Cryptocurrency saw an unparalleled explosion in 2017 with total market capitalization of all cryptocurrencies reaching $604 billion, however the recent fall in their market cap has been equally dramatic. But the uptick is much steadier for blockchain — the digital technology that underlies cryptocurrencies as well as other record-keeping applications. In particular, enterprise blockchain may be ready for its breakout. The three disruptive benefits of blockchain: disintermediation of trust, immutability of record and smart contracts, could be beneficially implemented in multiple areas as far as enterprise use cases are concerned. ... read more

Artificial Intelligence enters newsrooms, are jobs at stake?

According to Rajeev Vaid, Chief Operating Officer and Co-Founder, machine Intelligence platform Kognetics, AI is now being used by leading global media houses for automation of press coverage. "In future, we expect to see a wide-scale use of automated systems to analyse content quickly, in real time, and produce insights in a consumable and usable format to the journalists," Vaid told IANS. The initial impact of AI on journalism would be seen at four levels: Content gathering, content creation, moderation and scale. "AI can be used to scan through structured and unstructured news corpus to gather information restricted to an area, territory or region. Similarly, it can be used to disseminate content to a targeted section with local news via Internet, social and print media," Vaid stressed.
